Top places to visit in Northland and The Bay of Islands

A subtropical wonderland of islands, marine life, kauri forests, and Maori myths and legends, Northland is an incredible place to visit. 

One special place to visit is the Te Paki Sand Dunes. It is near the tip of Northland's Cape Reinga. It can be difficult to climb at the top, but the surfing down by riding a boogie board is the ultimate experience.

If you want to enjoy a drink, the  Duke of Marlborough pub & restaurant is the place to be. It is located in Russell which is the country's first capital. The Duke of Marlborough also holds New Zealand's first liquor license. 

The best thing about the Bay of Islands is the abundance of marine life. It is home to 144 islands and all of them has thousands of fishes and you also get to see dolphins during your trip.

Because of the many tourists that visit Paihia, the town is working hard to accommodate everyone. As a kiwi local we must preserve the beauty of New Zealand for future generations and other people from all over the world to enjoy. Everyone is Whanau. Find out more information about Paihia here
